Having spent the last week decorating I’m now at the point where I only have a couple of shots left to put up, both of which are of windows; and this one is mostly concentrated on what’s behind the glass, while the other emphasises the reflection. I’m hoping to go out for a while tomorrow – though I’m not sure where yet – to take some new stuff as I really don’t want to end up with no shots at all.

Anyway, I don’t think this image is all that stunning (or challenging), but I do think it’s relatively interesting. And what makes it for me is the green neon that almost frames the name of the shop – it provides a good contrast to the almost uniform colour of the rest of the shot.

Just fantastic.

the perspective of the neon lettering seems to adapt itself to the perspective of the reflected skyline..and yes, that defining green: very very fine!

I love how smooth the glass looks in this shot -- and you're right, the green neon really gives a nice visual contrast to the rest of the pinky/orange. . . almost like a neon flower.
